Wow! Bailey Fest 2010 was a great sucess. We had nice medium flows when most of the state is dry, great blue sky summer weather, tons of boaters, a fun takeout party, and a rager camp party. The turnout was huge. My guess is that we had 100 boaters paddle Bailey Saturday, and reports were that 30+ boaters paddled Foxton as well. There were about 100 people at the takeout party, and it was a great time. Folks came from Wyoming, New Mexico, Durango, Telluride, Silverton, Glenwood Springs, and all over the Front Range from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs.
Thanks to all the folks who came out to Bailey Fest, you made it a great time! Thanks also to all of the folks that helped out with the party, the camp, cleanup, loading and transporting stuff. Much appreciated.
Thanks to Marty @ Jackson Kayaks, Jon @ Confluence Kayaks and Oskar Blues. We had a great takeout party thanks to their generous support. If you do business with them, say thank you for their help.
Also, a big thanks to Dave Bennett and Denver Water for providing great flows over the weekend. Please send Dave comments and thanks about the event. If Denver Water has documented positive feedback on the event, it will help our cause. You can email Dave @ David.Bennett@denverwater.org
or you can write to David Bennett, 1600 West 12th Avenue, Denver, CO, 80204-3412. Please send your comments... its a big deal. Dave had to convince senior Denver Water folks that this was a good idea. Your comments will show that we appreciate it.
I sold all the T-shirts I had, but had several requests for more. I will print up another batch. PM me with your size if you want one. They are $15.
Hope to see you all next year...
Turn on the tunnel!
P.S. I was overwhelmed by the gratitude and thanks over the course of the weekend. I appreciate it!
